Le Dirigeable Fantastique ou le Cauchemar d'un Inventeur


Published 1905


"The Inventor Crazybrains and his Wonderful Airship"
(Le Dirigeable Fantastique ou le Cauchemar d'un Inventeur)

A Jules Verne-like flying airship soars the skies with floating mermaids before out of control fireworks put an end to the crazy inventor's dreams. Unlike the Technicolor wonders that would come decades later, this Georges Méliès film from 1905 achieved its color the old-fashioned way; they were painted on the film by hand.
